A copy of Gillray, issued by Tegg (no imprint) numbered '299', altered to adapt it to the size of plates in the 'Caricature Magazine'. The figures are closer, the last man only partly within the design. The horse is altered to a plodding hack, the ass turns its head to bray; there are four men in the pannier. The ground slopes slightly from r. to left BM 10117A
